Police said it does not look like impairment was a factor but investigators will be taking a close look at that, as well as at the driver's speed as they piece together the moments leading up to the crash.

At this point, it's not clear what caused the car to roll and police have not released any information about the driver.

There is no estimated time to reopen Grand Avenue westbound. Eastbound Grand Avenue remains open.
